The Saint Generator


Jennifer Fulwiler of Conversion Diary created a Saint’s Name Generator. You click a button, the another, and then it gives you a random saint. People like to use it for picking a patron saint for the new year. She has a lot of saints and beatified people uploaded, with info on their patronage and feast day, and links to bios on various Catholic sites.

Because I love to learn more about religion and that includes saints, I decided to give it a try, and this is what I got:

Gee, even random result generators know I’m Jewish.




Really, Am@zon?



Misheard Lyrics… even better than Numa Numa!

There have been about 514 Leap Years since Caesar created it in 45BC. Without the extra day every 4 years, today would be July 28, 2013. Also, the Mayan calendar did not account for the leap year…so technically the world should have ended 7 months ago.

I saw this posted as the status of several friends on Facebook, and it kind of makes me smile. I still suggest to schedule your Christmas parties before the 21st of December. 🙂

Israeli winter = Irish summer


Today a miracle happened. Kevin and I found ourselves having some free time together, without kids. Soem of the older boys offered to take the middle kids to a museum, the au pairs hd some fun activity with the littles, and we were just the two of us.

With this sudden freedom came the big question: What should we do? One of the things we decided on was having lunch at the park after my doctor’s appointment. Since it’s Friday and I don’t work on Friday I was wearing one of my new T-shirts and a ¾ length pair of cargo pants. We sat down to eat at the park, and a lady commented that I should dress warmer because it’s winter!

Well, it’s 16°C, that’s like 60°F and not raining… it’s like summer in Irelnd! And I’m not even exaggerating. I remember my summer vacation in Galway when the temperature never went above 17°C for the entire two weeks I was there. Plus, it was raining all the time. Kind of like the weather here right now. Because that is my “summer”, I’m unlikely to feel cold in the winter in this region of Israel. So just enjoying the sunshine and the mild weather and the company of the man I love… is like summer. Summer in the weather, summer in my heart.

And now a colouring page for lazy people:
